Every time I turn on the television and some writer wants to get rid of a well-liked character, it seems like they simply have them get diagnosed as having cancer and kill them off that way. The worst was the job that the writers of "The L Word" did with the Dana Fairbanks character. Dana got cancer and she was dead before the end of the season. I stopped watching the series at that point. However, that's television.
What happened to Ruben Navarro is real life but that life was canceled, stomped out, terminated and it was all because society valued his organs more than his life. After all, what's the point in keeping a person with disabilities alive when, by killing them, we can
This man was tortured and killed. Yeah, I'm calling it torture. You don't have to be in abu ghraib or Gitmo in order to be tortured by Americans. Ruben's body sustained treatment that would kill almost anyone but he still didn't die. It wasn't until the next day that he died. They, the doctors and nurses at the hospital, killed this man.
And yeah, I'm convinced that being poor and Latino definitely made him more vulnerable to this sort of abuse.
